5 Signs Your Body Is Aging Too Fast, and How to Reverse it.

One of the human body’s most masterful tricks is its ability to give us clues about what’s going on inside. These amazing clues can simply let us know there may be health concerns that need to be addressed before they get worse. The good thing about this is the clues can give us a chance to reverse any damage that has been done.

Premature wrinkles, skin tone, the condition of your hair, and the way you look and move can indicate whether your biological age is higher than your chronological age. Your biological age refers to how well your body is functioning and can be much higher or lower than your actual age. You’ve probably met an “old” young person or someone who is 80, but seems decades younger.

Here are some signs of aging and what to do about it:

Red Eyes

Red eyes can be more than just a simple allergy or dry eyes from starring at the computer screen all day. Chronic red eyes can be a sign of chronic inflammation, which is associated with several age-related diseases such as Osteoarthritis.

So, what can you do to stop it?

An alkaline diet rich in antioxidants can reduce inflammation, cut down on joint pain, reduce stiffness and fight aging. The best way to alter your Alkaline levels is to eat a diet of about 80 percent alkaline-forming foods and 20 percent acid-forming foods. That means 80 percent of your diet should be fruits, greens, and vegetables, while the other 20 percent is for protein, carbohydrates, starches, and fats. Alkaline foods include ripe fruits, sprouts, greens, and other non-starchy vegetables. When you trade in fast food and refined sugars for whole, real foods, you may begin to see (and feel) less evidence of chronic inflammation.

A few the best inflammation-fighting foods are:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Almonds
  • Walnuts
  • Garlic

Droopy Eyelids

Once again, you can tell a lot about a persons health from the condition of their eyes. droopy eyelids can be an indication of fatigue, allergies, thyroid dysfunction, or fluid retention. In most cases, droopy lids are connected to oxidative stress, which allows free radicals to accumulate and cause cell damage in your body. 

This is mainly caused by eating a poor diet that is high in processed foods. So, the next time you think a few chips never hurt anyone, think again. Instead opt for fresh colourful foods.

Aging around the eyes can be indicative of a more serious health problem. A study completed over the course of 35 years by Danish scientists and shared with the American Heart Association in Los Angeles found that fatty deposits around your eyes could indicate heart disease.

Wrinkles

While we have been trained to think that wrinkles are just a part of life and we will all get them as we age, wrinkles can be a sure sign of adjustment that needs to be made to your eating habits. 

If you are not eating foods that are vital to healthy skin, like pears, cabbage, and turmeric, you may be seeing deep nasio-labial lines and wrinkles much earlier than you should. Healthy skin is not just a superficial importance, your skin is your largest organ so why not look after it the best you can? After all it covers and protects your entire body. Wrinkles around the nasik-labial lines can be a sign that your liver needs cleansing. 

Looking after your liver is crucial to healthy skin. Foods such as Garlic, Turmeric, Walnuts, Blueberries, Atlantic Salmon, Lemon, Beetroot, Leafy Greens, Kidney Beans, Broccoli and Spinach will help to cleanse your liver. Try keeping these foods in your diet ongoing.

Changes in Skin Tone or Texture

If your body is full of waste and toxins it will show in the condition of your skin. Noticing that you skin is changing in texture or skin tone can be a sign that your Thyroid needs attention. A weak thyroid indicates that your adrenals may not be making some of the hormones you need to stay energised and feel young.

If you work to clear our the toxins regularly you will notice that your skin will look and feel a lot better than before. 

Giving you thyroid a break by cutting down or out caffeine and soy. When you stop relying on caffeine and artificial sugars to power through your day and instead depend on whole foods, your energy level will stay more constant and your organs can begin to recover.

  1. Seaweed and wild caught (not farmed) seafood; scallops, shrimp, sardines, salmon, and tuna.
  2. Eggs,
  3. Coconut oil
  4. Cranberries and cranberry juice
  5. Baked potatoes (with skin)

 

5 Worst Foods for Thyroid Health

  1. Soy products
  2. Refined gluten grains
  3. Sodas, alcohol, or excessive coffee
  4. Hydrogenated oils (avoid processed or fast foods)
  5. Refined sugar

 

You Constantly Feel Stressed Out

Stress is linked to chronic fatigue syndrome (which will make you feel much older than you are), and it can eventually result in adrenal fatigue and heart disease. 

Remember, all that stress you’re experiencing is aging your body. It is almost impossible to think we can live in a world without a bit of stress, however that doesn't mean we can't help ease the stress by looking after ourselves. Ensuring that we are exercising, eating fresh, colourful and nutrient rich foods will be sure to make us feel better. Spending time with loved ones and people with a positive nature will be sure to help us feel better.
